Frank Whaley will play Detective Rafael Scarfe on Marvel’s Luke Cage, coming to Netflix in 2016

Casting continues today on the upcoming “Marvel’s Luke Cage” as Deadline reports that Frank Whaley (“Under the Dome”) has joined the cast of the third Marvel Netflix series as Detective Rafael Scarfe.

“Rafe” Scarfe, a Lieutenant in the comics, was created by Chris Claremont and Pat Broderick and made his first appearance in 1975’s “Marvel Premiere” #23. The former NYPD partner of Misty Knight, Scarfe was of invaluable service in assisting Luke Cage and the other “Heroes for Hire”.

Frank Whaley joins a cast headlined by Mike Colter (“The Good Wife,” “The Following”) as Luke Cage. Alfre Woodard (“Desperate Housewives,” “True Blood”) is also set to play the series’ central villain, believed to be gang leader Black Mariah with Theo Rossi attached to play a part that is allegedly the comic book villain Shades. Simone Missick also recently joined the cast in the role of Misty Knight with Mahershala Ali set to play the villainous Cottonmouth.

Created by Archie Goodwin and John Romita, Sr., Luke Cage is one of the most popular street level heroes in the Marvel Universe who possesses superhuman strength and impenetrable skin. He’s also a friend and frequent business partner with Danny Rand, AKA Iron Fist, who will also be getting his own series on Netflix.

Frank Whaley can be seen in the upcoming Paramount Pictures family adventure Monster Trucks. Also starring Danny Glover, Amy Ryan, Jane Levy, Rob Lowe, Lucas Till and Holt McCallany, it is set to hit theaters March 18, 2016.

Cheo Hodari Coker (Notorious, “NCIS: Los Angeles”) will serve as executive producer and showrunner on “Marvel’s Luke Cage.” Coker is writing the first two episodes of the series that will premiere in 2016, everywhere that Netflix is available.
